CDR-1308: SR Set: National Monuments and Monuments to Genius

The images in this set are suggested by Nikolaus Pevsner in his book "A History of Building Types." His examples include monuments referring to persons or leaders or events instrumental in creating a nation or in celebrating the sense of nationhood, or national genius. Pevsner drew on the nineteenth century classical types inherited from the Romans: the column, as in Trajan's Column; the triumphal arch like those of the Emperors Titus and Constantine; and the equestrian statue such as that of Marcus Aurelius. We have gone beyond this threesome of classical types with the inclusion of such monuments as the Vietnam War Memorial.
